Hi
Given the length of your marriage the starting point for division of the assets is 50/50
You are likely to receive a larger share to reflect the fact that you have not been able to peruse your career and you may also decide to accept a larger share of the capital instead of spouse maintenance.
The fact that he does not earn a great deal may make that a better option.
You may find a shared ownership scheme will allow you to rehouse yourself
You may also be entitled to benefits for your income.
I hope that this is of as assistance - please ask if you need further details
